"ESQ Davis b.2-21-1828, d.12-29-1909, son of Enoch and Sarah Davis".
I found a Davis tombstone that I thought no one would ever be looking for.
Well... guess what? I received an email from someone looking for exactly that person. See Squire Davis Family.

His stone is in the old Uvalde Texas Cemetery broken into 3 pieces, lying on the ground.

It would be a great project for a Scout troop to learn how and repair these old stones before they are totally destroyed by time and lawn mowers.
